Repair Or Replace Your Garage Door
Knowing when to repair or replace your garage door is very helpful when calling Legacy technicians. Of course, we will always perform an inspection of your garage door system to find the exact issue and any other potential concerns. But being more informed helps you to know when it’s time to call the professionals for help with your garage door repair.
You should have your door repaired if it suddenly stops working, is very heavy when you try to manually lift it, has a damaged panel or is sagging to one side or the other.
You should have your door replaced if it hasn’t been working for a long time, is severely damaged, it is old, you’ve had a break in, it is draining power from your house or if there are no safety features installed.
Garage Door Inspection
When Legacy Garage Door technicians come to your house to inspect your garage we ensure every part of the system is properly inspected. When we first arrive our technicians will visually observe your garage system to see if there is anything that is clearly wrong. Opening and closing the garage door also helps because it allows the technicians to look for shaking or listen for any odd noises. If we can determine where the noise is coming from it will be easier to diagnose the problem. If the door doesn’t open or close at all there is a problem with the garage door opener.
When you are having your garage door repaired you should try to clear some space in your garage for the technicians to work. If your car is parked inside the garage it is best to remove it during the repair to prevent any damages. The more access our technicians can have to the entire garage door system the easier it is to work on it, and the quicker they will be done.
DIY GARAGE DOOR FIXES ARE DANGEROUS
People often take needless risks in an attempt to save a few dollars. For example, replacing a spring can cause serious injury to you if you don’t know what you’re doing: pinching, cuts, crushing, and even death. Garage doors inflict a number of injuries every year. For your safety, consider hiring a repair technician at Legacy Garage Doors.
Legacy Garage Door Repair
Although there may be simple fixes at home for why your garage door isn’t working, like dead batteries in your controller or something blocking the photo eyes, most other problems should be fixed by professionals. And with Legacy’s 21 years of experience there’s no question of who to call when your garage door needs repair.
It can be very dangerous to perform certain tasks on a garage door system. Torsion springs are definitely in the top three. Because torsion springs are used to lift and lower heavy garage doors they can have loads of pressure behind them and if they are damaged and you don’t know how to repair it, leave it to the professionals. These high-tension springs can cause serious damage if they hit someone.
Our technicians are even available 24/7 for any emergency garage door needs. If your door breaks and you need to get to work or need to get into your garage, call Legacy Garage Doors. We are licensed, insured and bonded in both Washington and Oregon.
